Treatment

If you've taken your child to the doctor because self-care steps haven't relieved your child's symptoms, your doctor may prescribe a corticosteroid such as dexamethasone. Corticosteroids are medications used to provide relief for inflamed areas of the body.

Croup is caused by a virus, and antibiotics won't help because they're used to treat bacterial infections. Cough syrup also is unlikely to help.

If your child's croup is serious, he or she may be placed in a humidified oxygen tent. The tent may distress some infants or children, so holding your child in your lap and placing the cool mist nearby may work best. Some children may need a breathing treatment using epinephrine or corticosteroids; these medications can help reduce swelling of the air passages.

Some children who are admitted to the hospital for treatment of croup might need a tube to be placed into the windpipe until the swelling subsides (intubation).

If your child needs care in the doctor's office, emergency room or hospital, plan to stay with your child. Croup is scary for children, and your calm reassurance is important. Bring a favorite blanket or toy, sing your child lullabies or read quiet stories to help distract and comfort your child.

Prevention

Frequent hand washing and avoiding contact with others with respiratory infections are good ways to prevent colds and croup.

Immediate attention to a noisy cough may be the best prevention for croup. Give your child extra fluids and expose him or her to warm, moist air to help soothe a noisy cough.
